speedo pinion news

Postby silverbullet » 07 Oct 2019, 18:21

We're going to manufacture another batch of our syncro speedo pinions, each ratio being made in batches of 30 for convenience.
There will be the popular 8/21 for 4.86 final drive vans and probably some 8/19 for the 5.43 axles too.
We have stock of the 8/20 so we won't re-stock them for now.
This time round we would also like to include a quantity (30 off) of the most popular 16" type for the 6.16 final drive vans (the ratio escapes my memory!)
It's unlikely that we would ever make any for the (very rare) 5.83 axle, but if we do it will probably be a one-time offer.ImageImage

21/8 is 5.43 ratio Ian along with 20/8, 4.86 ones are 18 and 19. 19 is 205 tyres so probably most useful
6.16 use 19/7 which is also used for 5.83 with 205 tyres

Thank for clarifying, I was writing without my lists to hand!
Any demand for either of the /9 ratios or the 18/8?

They will be a few weeks yet, my advice is to keep an eye on Brickwerks shop in November.

Here's my annotated list to help identify the correct speedo pinion for a given diff code:ImageImage

I'm being dim. Help!

Box rebuilt by Aidan in 2010 and changed to final drive 5.43.
However all I had at the time for the speedo drive was from the old final drive - a brown 18/8. This was been fitted to get speedo working, with the knowledge it'd never be accurate.

So now I have a 5.43 box, which would've come with a grey speedo pinion (yes ?) with had ? teeth, and the correct brass one to buy from BW is a ? with ? teeth.

Help!

Patrick all you can choose from are the four 8 drives,the 18 you have is a 4.86 14" ratio tyred for 205R14Cs; normally undererads slightly on factory tyres: on 215/75/15 should be about right on speedo and under read on odo, but you run bigger tyres so it's difficult to get better with an 8 drive, really as a 5.43 16" you should be running on of the 9 drive variants to best match your tyres, that necessitates changing the drive cog on the pinion shaft as well.
